I don't get it

I don't understand it. Well, that's not quite true; I do understand it, but don't get it. Maybe that's not quite right either. I understand it, I get it, but I don't like it.

I have posted over 3800 times in the last 9 1/2 years. My most popular posts have been ones dealing with obscure stuff like Hebrew, Greek, or Aramaic grammar. My all-time most popular post was back in 2006 when I posted about the Carta alphabet wall chart, followed closely by my musings on the plural of index.

Not that any of these have seen huge hits! I'm content to blog on obscure stuff that matters to me and a few others. I doubt I'll ever crack the Bibliobloggers top 50, or even the top 100 for that matter. That's fine with me. I post because I enjoy sharing what I'm reading, thinking, and experiencing.

But yesterday I posted on a current political debate—something I rarely do. In less than 24 hours, it has become one of the top posts of all time—again, that's not a huge number, but in less than 24 hours?

I would rather post on heart holiness and see that get huge hits! Or on aspect in Greek, or something like that : )

But yesterday I ran across an article by the children of same-sex marriages and posted it with some idle musings and it caught hits. And one semi-literate comment from someone who probably never read my blog before and probably never will again... Although his(?) syntax was shaky, I think he accused me of being a self-righteous christian, which is why I suspect he has never read my blog before. The only righteousness I have is that which is imputed and imparted to me by Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit as I rest and abide in him!
